    Healthy Banana Oat Snack Bars by Mel on February 7, 2012 · 26 comments I did some swift calculations and determined that in a given week, between school and home, my charges are eating a combined total of 40 snacks, give or take a few (like when mom forgets to pack her 2nd grader a snack that day – oops!). That’s some serious snacking. And one can only feed their children the same snacks without needing a little snack pick-me-up, if you know what I mean. Enter these healthy banana oat snack bars. Sometimes homemade granola bars and the like are anything but healthy but these little bars are truly nutritious with a fine dose of whole wheat flour, rolled oats, minimal sugars, several bananas and other glorious ingredients (like chocolate chips…you could definitely leave these out but I figure a little dark chocolate never hurt anyone). I made these fully expecting my kids to turn up their noses. As if they could sniff out the absolute healthiness of the bars. Shockingly they devoured the bars, asking for seconds, and I can’t blame them because for all their wholesome goodness, the banana oat bars are quite tasty. Jackson, m

Home made cliff bars: I'd use less raisins and more shredded wheat, but they were good. My kids liked them too. I gave the recipe to another parent and was told she makes them all the time now too. Nice addition to just granola for snacks. Road trip and coing worthy!
